Ad.ly has found a creative way to for companies to market themselves on twitter and facebook. With a network of over 1000 celebrities at their disposal, Ad.ly can give your business a jump start for a fee of as little as $200 per tweet. The more followers a celebrity has, the more expensive the tweet will cost you. One tweet can run you into the low five figure range. Many of the celebrities have quite a reach. Soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo has over 20 million twitter followers throughout the world. Rapper 50 Cent has over 8 million. It got me to thinking. Could this work for a law firm? Would it violate ethics rules? It's bad enough lawyers advertise on billboards and buses, is this the next frontier?
Sheen had included a link to internships.com. I never heard of the website until I ran across it in his tweet. I would imagine over two million of his tweet followers also visited the site. You can't buy publicity like that. Or can you? The self described "unemployed winner", may not be so crazy after all. Sheen signed on with a company called Ad.ly to make a couple of bucks off of his tweets.
Imagine Paris Hilton or Snoop Dogg tweeting about your criminal defense firm. Or Debbie Gibson tweeting about your family law practice. I am sure it would create some buzz. So how do you do it?
